EL steering coloumn into ED?

im sure its been done before by people who have put EL interiors in there car but im wondering what is needed and what modifications have to be done to get it to fit, also what wiring needs to be changed to make the cruise buttons work on the different wheel. im asking this because i want to put one of those AU woodgrain wheels in my car but i need the different coloumn for the different wheel. i also heard that something else needs to be modified to fit the AU wheel onto the EL coloumn, is this true??

Re: EL steering coloumn into ED?

So are we saying that the EB, ED, EF, AU steering wheels are interchangeable? Is it only the cruise controls that need slight modifications. Would intereting to know as my EB steering wheel (cruise control) is starting to fall to bits.

Learn from other people's mistakes. You won't live long enough to make them all.

If there's commotion coming from the passenger seat, and nothing but earth going round and round outside the windows,.......then everything is not as it seems!

The only time you have too much fuel, is when you're on fire!
